Pulmonary fibrosis is a kind of chronic lung disease. Because it could not be cured, patients need to receive long-term care until the lungs are failure finally. The main treatment of the patients is to use breathing machine to assist the lungs work. The patients with pulmonary fibrosis can not often move and respirators have to be used in a specific environment, so there are lots of patients lying on the beds till the end of lives. This way of end of lives is too cruel. So I wish to design a kind of portable oxygen equipment for patients with pulmonary fibrosis, and let them can still look at the world outside in the end their lives.
